Directions

  1. About 4 hrs before serving on early in day: If using fresh sweet potatoes, with vegetable peeler, peel about 16 paper thin strips from a potato; wrap them with plastic wrap and reserve for garnish. In 3 qt saucepan over high heat, heat remaining sweet potatoes and sufficient water to cover to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 30 min or possibly till potatoes are fork tender; drain. Cold sweet potatoes till easy to handle; peel and cut into chunks.
  2. In large bowl, with mixer at low speed, beat sweet potatoes till smooth. Add in half and half and next 6 ingredients, 1/2 tsp. salt; beat till well blended.
  3. In large bowl, mix flour and 1/2 tsp. salt. With pastry blender or possibly two knives used scissor fashion, cut in shortening till mix resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle 3 to 4 Tbsp. cool water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, into mix, mixing lightly after each addition till dough is just moist sufficient to hold together. Shape dough into a ball.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On lightly floured surface, with floured rolling pin, roll dough into a round 1 1/2 inches larger all around than inverted 9 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch deep dish pie plate. Gently ease pastry into pie plate; trim edge, leaving 1 inch overhang. Fold overhang under; healthy pinch to create high edge; flute.
  5. Spoon sweet potato mix into pastry lined pie plate. Bake pie 40 min or possibly till knife inserted 1 inch from edge comes out clean. Cold pie slightly on wire rack; chill till well chilled.
  6. Meanwhile, make potato garnish: In small saucepan over medium heat, heat 1/2 inch salad oil to 350 degrees. Drop a few sweet potato strips into to salad oil and fry till crisp and golden brown, about 2 min. With slotted spoon, remove potato strips to paper towels to drain. Repeat with remaining strips. Use potato strips to garnish pie. Makes 10 servings.
